Circuit Court Mediator Eligibility List for Circuit 16

The following is a list of circuit court certified mediators eligible to accept cases referred by the circuit court to a dispute resolution orientation session. Each mediator has indicated a willingness to serve as a mediator in this circuit. From this list, you may click on a mediator's name or an organization's website to be linked to additional information that may assist you in your decision.

If the case is a family case, parties must choose a circuit court-family certified mediator. If the case is a civil (non-family) case, parties must choose a circuit court-civil certified mediator. (Parties should consider the mediators' mediation fees before selecting the mediator to conduct the free orientation session, as parties often choose to proceed to mediation with the same mediator.) Be sure to review the Circuit Court Mediation Program Procedures for important instructions.

++ For cases involving only custody, visitation and/or support, Virginia Code §20-124.4 provides for mediation services free of charge to the parties. This mediator is willing to conduct such mediations and will receive Supreme Court payment of $100. (Parties can choose to pay for mediation instead of using the free service.)
